Additional Info

More Details

* Pads conform to body shape and do not bottom out
* They dissipate body heat and will not absorb urine odours
* The gel will not leak if the pad is punctured but the puncture should be repaired
* Pads are heavy to lift
* Can be custom made to a specified size on request. May take 5-6 weeks
* The pad should be rolled for transporting

Attachment
* The three larger size pads ie. Models 6301, 6302 and 6303, are available with an Anchoring Hitch to hold the pad in position on the bed when the head or foot sections of the bed are elevated
* The hook & loop straps are threaded through the bed frame to secure the pad to the mattress

Cover
* A knit cover is available for model no 6100

Repairs
* Use pad repair kit from supplier or Opsite (Smith & Nephew) or Tegadem

Storage
* Store pads flat or rolled. Before rolling turn pad over so underside faces upwards. This prevents the upper side from creasing

Cleaning
* Can be cleaned with water, disinfectant and liquid bleach
* Do not use alcohol which may harden the surface

Note
* Regarding use of an electric blanket / heating pad under the gel pad. Action Products advised that the heating pad be placed under the pad and pre-warm it. You must be extremely careful that the pad does not get too hot or develop hot spots as this will carry through the Akton pad and the patient could get burned. They should not take it above 103F as this could cause burns to the patient. If the patient has no feeling then someone must check the patient at all times to prevent burns caused by the heating pad. The Action pad merely will transfer the heat as the heating pad produces it
* Follow the manufacturer's directions when using a heating pad / electric blanket

Method Of Use

Use
* Place pad on bed with labelled side upwards
* Cover the pads with a bedsheet
* The smallest pad can be enclosed in a pillow case
* The pad can be used over an electric blanket as it conducts heat

Caution
* Avoid pulling the pad especially when a person is lying on it
* Avoid folding the pad
